CHEM 2400, CHEM 2410
Winter 2024

This course and the related lab is the first part of a two-semester sequence that studies the chemistry of carbon compounds, including their structure, nomenclature, preparation, reactions, analysis, spectroscopy, and properties. Reaction mechanisms are stressed within a functional group framework. The laboratory session introduces basic laboratory techniques frequently utilized in organic syntheses.
This course and the related lab is the second part of a two-semester sequence that studies the chemistry of heteroatom-containing carbon compounds, including their structure, nomenclature, preparation, reactions, analysis, and properties. Reaction mechanisms within a functional group framework are stressed. Stability, nucleophilicity and electrophilicity, and structurereactivity relationships will also be examined. The laboratory session practices basic organic syntheses.

Recommended Texts for Organic Chemistry I and II - CHEM 2400 and 2410

  2. Describe chemical structures and relate them to physical properties of organic compounds.
  3. Correlate molecular structure and spectroscopic behavior.
  4. Describe and apply fundamental reactivity concepts such as acidity, basicity, electrophilicity, nucleophilicity, electron delocalization and rules of resonance.
  5. Describe the mechanisms and outcomes of addition, substitution and elimination reactions of simple organic compounds.
  6. Describe and perform basic organic laboratory techniques.
  1. Recognize major functional groups and name organic compounds containing these functional groups.
  2. Understand and apply the basic rules of reactivity, nucleophilicity and electrophilicity to organic compounds.
